    Default While holding a consistent text message convo...

    does anyone else notice their battery tank? i can be holding a fairly consistent texting convo between two people, maybe a message back and forth every minute, for 10 mins or so and watch my battery level drop 3-4%. i mean is this normal?

    screen brightness is on auto dim, GPS isnt in use and no other apps open. it always seems like texting drains the hell out of it. here are my current stats...

    Usage: 2:24
    Standby 3:38
    Battery: 76% (dropped 2% since i started typing this from text messages)

    the only other things i did was make a few plays in words with friends and check facebook once.my other buddy swears that he can go 3 days on this thing. i cant get through 10 hours. i can literally watch the battery level drop before my eyes.

    When mine gets to be like that I let the battery tank all the way down to 0 and then put it on the charger and let it fully charge before taking it off. Helps out for a month or so.
